Singer Kim Woo Joo caught pretending to be a mental patient to evade military service

Article: Singer who lied that he can see ghosts in order to be eligible for public service prosecuted

Source:
Yonhap News via Nate

1. [+876, -4] If he can see ghosts, he can go catch ghosts in the Marines (marines has a reputation in Korea of being fearless enough to even catch ghosts)

2. [+542, -6] It's Kim Woo Joo (29). He was caught acting lying as a mental patient to evade military service.

3. [+419, -5] The marines is waiting for you ^_^

4. [+21, -0] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ How do people come up with these excuses

5. [+12, -0] "Kim claimed that he began seeing ghosts eight years ago. He was even rushed to the ER twice from fainting after seeing ghosts. He barely leaves the house because of such reasons. He received 42 different treatments and was hospitalized for two weeks in July." He really went above and beyond...

Article: 'Pretended to be a mental patient' Kim Woo Joo's wealthy family background 'father is a pharmacist'

Source: TV Daily via Nate

1. [+633, -9] They clearly didn't educate their kid... So he was scared of the army more than ghosts. I hope his hyungs over at the army give him some special treatment.

2. [+434, -10] Who is this nugu anyway?

3. [+197, -7] Some nugu I never even knew existed gets his first mainstream article about his military evasion. He looks like a mental patient from his picture alone. They better punish him properly.

4. [+15, -0] He really thought acting like a mental patient would work? Should've just extracted a tooth while he was at it ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+11, -1] That's fine, he can just join the marines ㅋ

  3. Im sorry but my brother is in the Marines and this kind of shit is just so ridiculous and embarrasing... its tough as hell sometimes to be in the military, esp with the apparent bullying shit that happens but other men go off and do their 2 years and what hes doing to evade it is just sad

  7. Way to ruin your career.
    People never learn do they, didn't he see what happened to other idols who did stuff not to go to military.

    He's a Korean citizen, he needs to do his part and go to military.

  9. Kim Woo Joo who???
    anyways, did he really lied about this ???
    ""He was even rushed to the ER twice from fainting after seeing ghosts. He barely leaves the house because of such reasons. He received 42 different treatments and was hospitalized for two weeks in July."
    woahhhh, what a determination to avoid the service..

  10. I think so? He's the one who leaves the group

  11. His mouth looks skewed like Baekhyun's, but his eyes look like Luhan's.

    I don't know him so I can't speak for him but I can understand men in general not wanting to serve the army in Korea. It's really fucked up in there. It's not so easy to just "suck it up and serve" like you guys say it is. The Korean army is a really corrupted place. It's scary.

    ReplyDelete
  15. if ... just if... any of my biases try to evade mandatory active military service, i think i cant support him anymore. i will be super disappointed. please be a man and serve properly for 2 years.

  41. IntenseFeelings_UglySobbingJanuary 20, 2015 at 2:03 AM

    So regardless of how the army is, they have to suck it up and go like everyone else? That's why the army conditions never change. That's why soldiers get away with bullying and murder. Because people like you believe everyone should suck it up and go. I don't why it's so hard to understand that Korean men are afraid to go. No excuse, you say? Okay. Go to the Korean army, and then come back to me. Then try to tell me it was easy.

    ReplyDelete
  42. What he did is disrespectful in so many ways.

    ReplyDelete
  43. For him to think that seeing ghosts would be a good excuse already proves that he is not right in the head.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Wait is he really? O.O

  77. Yeah, it makes them be responsible.. It makes them easy to get a job later if they serve well.. And for celebrity, it's really important for their career.. If they served well they will get praise and their career will long last like Yoo Seungho, but if not, even a guy who have clean past like Yoo Seung Jun will get hate for the rest of his life because he didn't want to serve....

    ReplyDelete
  78. His songs are pretty good. He is ballad singer i think cuz most of his songs are ballad.

    ReplyDelete
  79. he's kinda cute in that picture tho haha

  83. damn. I was thought he is 4MEN's Kim Won Joo -_-

    ReplyDelete
  84. Who?

    Hahaha
    Anyhow, does he think people will believe his reason?

    ReplyDelete
  85. ... or he is actually mentally ill. Seems like a lot over an extremely long period of time for it to just be another case of trying to avoid service.
    I feel sorry for him if it turns out he wasn't lying. I wonder what evidence they have that he was lying though..

    ReplyDelete
  86. meant to be a joke hun =D

    ReplyDelete
  87. The excuse..... He's amazing to come up with such a lie like that LOL

  94. Is it rude that the movie mean girls came to my mind
    You can't sit with us you are not cool/has not server correctly

    ReplyDelete
  95. So much effort trying to evade the inevitable. For real, pretending to have a mental illness is a lot of work. I had to pretend being schizophrenic and act it out when my groupmates and I were testing ourselves in mental illness diagnosis in Psychiatry class. It's so hard to act differently for so long.

    If he really didn't want to serve, he could've just run away abroad and come back when his eligibility is up like other draft dodgers. And you see some people have to do public service because of various legit injuries and get taunted over not serving properly then you get this dude faking it to get off easy.

    ReplyDelete
  96. He look like Kwak Dong Yeon

  99. i can see ghosts too but not everyday, feel free for not believing in me

    ReplyDelete
  100. Lol if he's gonna go to all that trouble visiting hospitals and such he should at least make sure the truth doesn't get out! This is the most unique way of draft dodging I've seen. He sings very well but sadly this is probably the first and last time most people would have heard of him :/

    ReplyDelete
  101. and why doesn't he take off the stickers from his cap? one of them is halfway off anyway...

    .....pretty much my though of this article,
    usually im bad with names of people i don't folloe or aren't as active but recognize them from theit pics but guess I'll remember him as the one who went mental trying to evaded the military

    ReplyDelete
  103. Nope, it's a guy with same name not this one. The YH friend served already.

    ReplyDelete
  104. he guy on the left evaded obligatory military service.

    ReplyDelete
  105. this, it's so easy to tell someone to just go to the army but most of us here are privileged enough to live in a country w/o mandatory military service.


    2 years is a long ass time and with the recent military news i don't think it's surprising at all to see so many people draft dodging

    ReplyDelete
  106. true. mental illness is a serious matter and shouldn't be played around
    when things like this happen, people get suspicious of those exempted on the same reason

    actor Park Hae Jin was exempted from military service for mental illness reason back then. reporters had a field day when they got to know this and netizens accused him of lying.

    but at the end, it was proven that his exception is legal. he was forced to disclose his medical reports including his long history of schizophrenia, depression and lung problems. he was victimized and even medias end up apologizing to him.

  107. the guy on the left evaded obligatory military service

  108. my cousin also used the same excuse and her mom believed her. she said she cant study because the ghost punishes her when she studies. so she failed her high school and didnt go to college.

  115. How do they know he was faking?

    ReplyDelete
  116. I knew that go to the army isn't an easy thing but duuuh. every man in SK does and did that. yes, some got bullied and killed themselves but the others (which are probably more than 80%) doesn't get that treatment. if you saw Gentleman Dignity then you can see a little bit truth about this. most of them are excited and think of it as a one time life experience.
    you can't change the army. and never will. sadly there will always people who bullied others, and what can we do is to not get fed up by them. but it's not everywhere. open your tiny brain a little bit bigger.

    ReplyDelete
  117. That's sounds more like possessed than mentally ill...

    But possession isn't real thing.

    1. is his popularity or nuguness relevant in looking into the issue....it's annoying seeing ppl keep focusing about how unknown ppl is just to insult them or show they're irrelevant...even when it's nothing to do with the issue...just focus on the darn thing n keep your fking arrogance in your closet.
    2. ......what if he really can see ghosts??? ppl are all raving about dramas on mental patients but in reality.....even they don't believe possibility of mental cases...tsl....a shame that in the end...blabbering about meaningful dramas turn out to eb meaningless after all...

  129. You'll go to prison if you don't enlist so better to get over it than faking it. Besides, more than 85% of those who enlist was able to finish the service peacefully, so it's not as bad as you think.

    ReplyDelete
  133. cant rule out the possibility of mental illness though. because at this time the only thing against his documented illness is only a hearsay from a "source".

    ReplyDelete
  134. rather than being singer (which is unknown, even for korean) may be he can work like tae gong shil in master's sun and get money

    & if he is lying then he can join clara in being the fucking worst, how can you lie about something like that? yes, being in the army isn't easy, but it's only for two years, i'm stuck with my mental illness for fucking life. FUCK HIM.

  152. I understand why he did it though. Army is no joke. My country's army is very well-ordered, strict rules against bullying and over-the-top physical punishment and such, yet it was still a really scary, tough, sometimes awful experience for my brothers and friends, and some of their armymates (mere boys) have even died (due to health conditions of their own). The Korean army with its strict hierarchy, rampant bullying and frequent deaths is worse.

    ReplyDelete
  153. my country isn't at war but we have the military service which my grandfather, fathers, uncles, brothers, friends have all served and i totally understand both why the singer did it and also why the knetz are so angry. i seriously think inetz comment too much on issues they have no idea about
